Balboa Park Miniature Railroad

Balboa Park Train 1

One of the highlights for children visiting Balboa Park or the San Diego Zoo is taking a ride on the Balboa Park Miniature Railroad. Children can ride on the miniature railroad along a long windy track surrounded by giant animal sculptures, lush green foliage and more.

Balboa Park Train 4

Before leaving Balboa Park, we ended our visit to the area by taking our kids on a train ride. The kids laughed and giggled as the train made its away along the track throughout Balboa Park. The train ride is about three minutes and goes on a 1/2 mile trip through four acres of the park. There are only 50 currently models of this train remaining, and your kids can ride on it today at Balboa Park in San Diego.

  1. Shelby,
    I would like to do a paimting of the Mini Train at Balboa Park. Would you mind if I used your black and white photo as a reference to paint the train. It is for a painting for a friend who has a great memory of that place.

    Thank you,
